WORKING WITH 

MARLI

Whether this is the first time you'll be photographed by a professional, or if you are a seasoned pro in front of the camera; it's very important to understand how I produce my best work. 

MY APPROACH TO TELLING STORIES IS DIFFERENT

Sure, I'm capable to produce a perfectly curated image, with not a hair out of place, but I find these images to feel a little contrived. 

I loathe staging moments or encouraging awkward, stiff poses. My approach to every shoot is tailored to my couples needs and I only provide curated direction when needed, BUT being your photographer entails WAY MORE than taking some epic photos for you. 

I never aim for the perfect shot, or staging Pinterest poses. I want to get to know you down to your core. My aim is to build a relationship with my YOU, in order to capture YOUR story in it's true, real most authentic form to ensure you receive memories completely unique to your love story. 

WE'RE GONNA BE FRIENDS!

I'M

YOUR BIGGEST CHEERLEADER,

EXTRA BRIDESMAID, JOKE TELLER +

ADVENTURE BUDDY! 

I cannot place enough emphasis on this! When we share the same sentiments and enjoy similar activities, life is golden! 

Having a connection, makes it easier to relax and have loads of fun together. 

The majority of my couples, think they are terrible at having their photos taken and after each session, they admit we had loads of fun and it was not as daunting as they thought it would be. 

Being an introvert, I understand how daunting it can be, my approach to telling your story is to make you feel as comfortable as possible whilst having a tremendous amount of fun!

Remember I said I'm your fifth bridesmaid? Well, I meant it!

 

I know that this is probably your first time planning a wedding and it can be daunting. I'm here for you! 

I'm here to help with any concerns, if you need advice, tips on how to save money, things to consider for your wedding day timeline, even how to set up your reception space for the best photos. 

I am more than just your photographer! I am here to help plan a stress-free wedding and capture you looking at your utmost best. 

After all the confetti has settled, your photos are the only tangible item you will have left of your special day. 

Let's create something epic together!

My focus is to document your wedding day as authentically as possible for you to walk away with a collection of frames which will translate into a story of how your day felt.

I want your photos to tell YOUR story, no staged moments, filled with all the joy, love, laughter and tears (yup, I capture these too ;)

Your memories should be meaningful to you!

 

WANT TO KNOW A LITTLE SECRET?

Plan your celebration to reflect you as a couple. If you want to break traditions, do so! You don't have to follow any rules, it's your day!

That's why you'll probably need a documentary wedding photographer ;) Pick me pick me! I am here to support you and document your day and all the feels.

I POUR MY HEART + SOUL INTO CAPTURING YOUR DAY

For that reason, I shoot a limited number of weddings and elopements a year and only shoot ONE wedding over a weekend; no back-to back bookings!

The reason for this is to ensure that EVERY client gets the BEST of me as their photographer. 

Most of my couples book me for their wedding as well as pre- and post-wedding day shoots. Limiting my clients per year, ensures  that I have enough time for their multiple shoots too. 

After 5+ years in the industry, I deliver my best work when I am rested and not over booked. 

MARLI! 

WE WANT TO BOOK YOU,

I am beyond excited to be your photographer - eeeekkkk!

Let's get to the nitty gritty then -
